Book Reviews

Welcome to the Amethyst Library!

I have my library of book reviews simply sorted by age recommendation based on content–a book under the “8+,” category doesn’t necessarily mean a book solely for 8-year-olds. It simply means I think that the content would best be appreciated by persons ages 8 and older.

I have also sorted my reviews highest to lowest rating. The first row is 5 stars, second is 4 stars, and so on. 🙂
